A backup link creates an alternate route if the dedicated WAN connection between two NetPerformer units goes down. One side is configured to activate a call when the link goes down (CALL-BKUP mode) The other side is configured to answer the call (ANSWER mode).

Figure 2-4: Backup Link Scenario

A backup link is configured with the PORT or SLOT submenu of the SETUP command, in much the same way as for a dedicated WAN link (see Figure 2-2).

2.2.1

Calling Side of the Backup Link


To configure the port or channel on the calling side of the backup link:
1. 2. 3.

Set the Protocol to PVCR Set the Mode to CALL-BKUP Specify which dedicated WAN link or links this port backs up, using the Port to back parameter Set the dialer type with the Dialer parameter

4.

NOTE:

If you choose a Dialer type that requires a dial phone number, configure this number with the SETUP/PHONE menu. Refer to the section Configuring the Phones for Backup Links in the WAN/Leased Lines module of this document series.

5.

Change the other port parameters from their default values, if desired. Important parameters include: - Backup termination mode - Delay before call activation (s) - Delay before call deactivation (s) - Call activation timer (s).

Configuring a WAN Link for Conditioned Activation


WAN link activation can be conditioned by the presence of active modem signals on a user port that sends data via this link. The user port Protocol must be set to HDLC, DDCMP, T-ASYNC, R-ASYNC, BSC, COP or PASSTHRU For a DCE connection, the DCD signal must be present. For a DTE connection, the DTR signal must be present.

Figure 2-6: Conditioned Link Scenario

Bring the link up by activating the modem signals on the attached user equipment. When the NetPerformer detects the modem signals, it immediately activates the link required to transmit the data to its destination. When you deactivate the modem signals, the NetPerformer responds by disconnecting the link. A conditioned link is configured with the PORT or SLOT submenu of the SETUP command, in much the same way as for a dedicated WAN link (see Figure 2-2). To configure a port or channel as a conditioned link:
1. 2. 3.

Local unit DLCI address


Console SNMP Text-based Config

Local unit DLCI address

npsysDLCI

[npsys] DLCI

For NetPerformer base product only:

The Data Link Connection Identifier (DLCI) address of the local unit. This address is used for PVCs that do not have a configured DLCI address (set with the DLCI address parameter for the port or PVC). Auto setting: To have the local unit learn the DLCI address automatically from the Frame Relay switch, leave the Local unit DLCI address at its default value, 0. The NetPerformer will obtain the correct DLCI address from the network through the Full Status Report. Manual setting: To set this parameter manually, select a non-zero value. Define the Local unit DLCI address manually when a global DLCI address is required for your Frame Relay application.

NOTE:

In the NetPerformer a DLCI number has meaning only locally between the unit and the switch. If Frame Relay addressing appears global to the network from the point of view of the destination device, the local NetPerformer unit must know how it appears to the destination device when it wants to initiate a connection. When set to a non-zero value, the Local unit DLCI address provides this information, and is used as the Srce field in the connection request.

Values: Default:

0 - 1022 0

RIP version for backplane links


Console SNMP Text-based Config

RIP version for backplane npsysBackplaneRipVerlinks sion

[npsys] BackplaneRipVersion

Enables or disables the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) on the backplane links, and select the RIP version used. Three settings are available to enable IP RIP: V1: The backplane links use RIP Version 1. With this version the subnet mask for an IP address in a routing table entry is determined using the mask of the link on which the frame was received. V2 BROADCAST: The backplane links use RIP Version 2 in Broadcast mode. In Version 2 a subnet mask is transmitted for each address contained in the RIP frame. In Broadcast mode each RIP V2 frame is sent with IP address 255.255.255.255, which permits routers running RIP Version 1 to receive and analyze those frames. V2 MULTICAST: The backplane links use RIP Version 2 in Multicast mode. In this mode each RIP V2 frame is sent with IP address 224.000.000.009, which prevents routers running RIP Version 1 from receiving those frames. With RIP V2 Multicast, only RIP V2 compliant devices will receive RIP frames. For details on the differences between IP RIP routing using RIP Version 1 and RIP Version 2, consult the section IP Routing with RIP Version 2 in the LAN Connection and IP Networks module of this document series. Set the RIP version for backplane links parameter to DISABLE to prevent the NetPerformer from transmitting or receiving IP RIP frames on the backplane links. The NetPerformer will discard all RIP frames received.

NOTE:

If you disable IP RIP on the NetPerformer, but require IP routing to a particular destination (for management under SNMP, for example) you can configure a static IP address using the IP Static menu, described in the LAN Connection and IP Networks module of this document series.

Quick Configuration

If Telnet access is enabled, and you leave all 5 authorized IP addresses at their default value, 000.000.000.000, the NetPerformer unit can be accessed from any IP device that supports Telnet.
Caution: If you allow the NetPerformer to be accessed via Telnet without IP address limitation, the unit can be secured through login authorization or RADIUS authorization only.

Authentication Using RADIUS


The NetPerformer supports Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) for authentication of console and Telnet access to the network. The NetPerformer implementation follows the RFC-2865 specification. In this implementation: The RADIUS server software and a database of user profiles are installed on a dedicated workstation in the network Access privileges are determined individually for each username in the database, as either FULL or MONITOR access Login requests received at a participating NetPerformer unit are forwarded to the RADIUS server for authentication using the RADIUS protocol and a Shared
Secret

The RADIUS server is able to authenticate login requests from all participating NetPerformer units (clients) in the network. Advantages of using a RADIUS server are: The authentication process is centralized in a distributed client/server system User authentication is simpler and more secure The addition and removal of user profiles does not require configuration changes on several units in the network.

6.5.1

Attributes Supported
The following standard RADIUS attributes are supported in the NetPerformer implementation, as defined in the RFC-2865 specification:
Attribute No. Standard Name NetPerformer Equivalent

1 2 4 6 18

User-Name User-Password NAS-IP-Address Service-Type Reply-Message

LOGIN PASSWORD NetPerformer IP address Access privilege (FULL or MONITOR) Access-Accept or Access-Reject

6.5.2

Login Procedure
When a remote user dials into a NetPerformer unit the usual login procedure is initiated: The NetPerformer requests a LOGIN (username) and PASSWORD for authentication purposes.

Quick Configuration

Once the user enters the LOGIN and PASSWORD, the NetPerformer searches the set of User Profiles that have been configured locally on the unit. Refer to Defining the User Profiles on page 6-3. If a match is found in the local User Profiles, the user is logged on with the Access privilege (FULL or MONITOR) that is defined in the User Profile. If no match is found in the local User Profiles, the NetPerformer turns to the RADIUS Server for authentication: The NetPerformer builds a RADIUS Access-Request packet from the login and password encrypted with the Shared Secret, and forwards the login request to the RADIUS Server for authentication. The RADIUS Server de-encrypts the login request using the Shared Secret, and searches its database for the login/password combination. The RADIUS Server returns its verdict to the NetPerformer in the form of an Access-Accept or Access-Reject message. If the user is authorized to access the unit, the RADIUS Server also indicates the type of access privilege (FULL or MONITOR) that is allowed for this user. The NetPerformer responds to an Access-Accept message by logging the user on with the indicated access privileges. It responds to an Access-Reject message by displaying the following at the console: Radius Authentication refused... Invalid Password.

Configuring the NetPerformer for RADIUS Authentication


The criteria for RADIUS authentication are defined at the console using the IP/RADIUS submenu of the Setup (SE) command. The NetPerformer can be defined as a RADIUS client only.
Unit ID> (main prompt)

Setup (SE)

IP

RADIUS (RA)

Figure 6-4: SETUP/IP/RADIUS Path on the CLI Tree

To configure the NetPerformer as a client for RADIUS authentication: Enter the menu sequence: SE IP RADIUS Specify the Radius Server IP Address Define the Transmission timeout in seconds (default 1 second) Define the number of Transmission Retries that the unit can make to the RADIUS Server for a single login request (default 1) Enter the Radius Shared Secret (maximum 16 ASCII characters)
Caution: The Shared Secret must also be configured on the RADIUS

Server. To enable authentication of console users, enter YES after the Console Authentication parameter prompt (default NO) To enable authentication of Telnet users, enter YES after the Telnet Authentication parameter prompt (default NO). Here is an example of the required configuration:

NOTE:

The notation [Monitor Access] in this example will appear as [Full Access] for users with FULL access privileges to NetPerformer functions.

6.5.5

Example of Telnet Access


If a user is allowed access to the NetPerformer under Telnet Authentication, the following information is logged in the alarm file:
CHICAGO>DA DISPLAY ALARMS NetPerformer SDM-9380 vX.X.X Memotec Inc. (c) 2003 Signaling Engine X.X.X Console connected through TELNET Time> FRI 2003/07/25 11:14:04 Alarm> USER JHUNTER FRI 2003/07/25 11:14:02 Alarm> LOGGED IN VIA TELNET[radius/FA] FRI 2003/07/25 11:14:02

NOTE:

The notation [radius/FA] in this example indicates a RADIUS authentication confirmation with FULL access privileges. Authentication confirmation with MONITOR access is represented by [radius/MA].
